A wardrobe staple that works for every type of body and occasion.
The bodysuit isn’t a trend anymore — it’s an essential wardrobe staple and here to stay. Like a denim jacket or a white t-shirt, they work with all kinds of outfits and body type. From super soft layering pieces to styles covered in sequins, there’s a bodysuit out there for everyone.
Here are five brands that are putting their own spin on this new basic.
Based: New York City
Vibe: Luxury basics.
About: The brand launched its first bodysuit collection in 2014 and includes layering and statement pieces (we’re a fan of the one-shouldered silk blouse for a sleek party look). The bodysuits come in a range of cuts such as one-shouldered and tie-knot styles.
What we’re getting: The Maiden ($265 USD)
Vibe: Full glam.
About: This Polish brand is all about comfort and quality but these bodysuits are anything but basic. Styles include a gold sequin-covered suit and shiny metallic pieces — glitter has never looked so comfortable.
What we’re getting: Bardot Bodysuit ($101.92 USD)
Vibe: Functional and sportswear-inspired.
About: Founded in 2015 by Milan-based fashion photographer Carolina Amoretti, this bodysuit collection updates aerobic throwback styles with stage-worthy details and materials like velvet and latex (Dua Lipa, Solange and M.I.A have worn the bodysuits in performances).
What we’re getting: Carolina One Shoulder ($123)
Based: United States
Vibe: Business casual comfort.
About: These bodysuits are made for the office, perfect to pair with a pencil skirt or suit. Bonus: every item bought online comes with free video performance coaching sessions so that you can feel as good as you look. It’s also royal-approved — Meghan Markle wore one for her first official evening appearance with Prince Harry.
What we’re getting: Boss Bodysuit in Ivory ($280 USD)
The Bodysuit of Barcelona
Vibe: Timeless pieces with a feminine and Mediterranean aesthetic.
About: Available in muted earth tones and soft pastels, these bodysuits are made for a summer picnic date or lounging on the beach at sunset. Using fabric sourced from Italy, the tennis collar and buttons detailing are giving us major vintage feels.
